I have never read such a diverse and spine-tingling collection of scary stories in my life! I know this is a "junior" novel but, as a horror aficionado, I did not expect this to be as hair raising as it was! I HIGHLY recommend this book. If your children are easily spooked, maybe hold off on this one until they are older. Adults are sure to love this book as well.

Haunted is a brand new collection of ghost stories written by some of the best seriously spooky authors. I discovered it on the library shelves the other day and picked it up to see who the stories were written by. I was excited to see that Haunted includes short stories from Derek Landy (Skulduggery Pleasant), Joseph Delaney (The Spook’s Apprentice), Philip Reeve (Mortal Engines) and Susan Cooper (The Dark is Rising).

There are stories about a lost ghost child trapped in a mirror and wanting to pull you in; an evil Soul Eater waiting for its next victim; a ghost walk with a haunting twist; and the spirit of a drowned boy who needs to be put to rest.
